Abstract (en)

[origin: GB2543793A] A trailer chassis 1 has two spaced longitudinal elongate structural support beams 2, preferably of I-section, which span at least a substantial part of the length of the trailer and which are mechanically coupled by spaced apart transverse torsion boxes 3 spanning longitudinal beams 2 with joints reinforced by wing gussets. The web of each beam 2 is reinforced with a reinforcement 6 located on a portion of the web 9 of beam 2 opposing that engaging a respective torsion box 3. Reinforcement 6 extends less than the full height between the bottom and the top of beam 2, preferably between 20% and 70% of the height of the beam. Preferably, reinforcement 6 comprises a flat steel plate bent or folded to form a U-shape or C-shape member; typically, reinforcement 6 engages an upper or lower flange 7 of beam 2.
